Message Board Post:
I am looking for information on my husbands family. His grandfather John/Johan E. Jacobson
( Jakobsen, Jacobsen)B:1896 Lyngdal, Norway D: 1981 Delhi,Deleware County, NY) lived in
Deleware County, NY. He was a barber all his life and married Iva Hoosier in Sep 14, 1927.
They had a daughter NORMA JACOBSON born in 1932 or 33. Iva died in 1933 I am not sure if
it was related to childbirth I cannot find any record on her death. NORMA (Jakobsen) only
shows up in the 1940 census with her father in Stamford, Deleware County, NY. I know
nothing else of Norma except that she DIED in a CAR ACCIDENT( as told by a family
member)prior to 1980 but I do not know any dates, location or anything about her being
married... nothing. There are several Norma Jacobson's listed for NYC but I am unsure
if any are her. I also found a passenger list from 6 Oct 1950 from Norway. I thought she
might have gone to visit her father's family. Not sure! Looking for a few clever
researchers to see if they can!
find something I can't. I am not in NY and do not know where to start looking. I
have spent many hours on ancestry.com
and I am at a wall. John remarried in 1941 to Ida
Munson and had my husband's father. Thank you in advance.
